A week ago, I gave a talk at a corporate firm on the subject of ‘nutrition on the go’.
This particular company has a large number of employees who travel around the country or world and so they spend much of their work-life on the road.
As you can imagine, it’s not always easy to find meals and snacks that are perhaps as ‘healthy’ as you’d like them to be when away from home or the office.
The other common pitfalls are eating at irregular times, leaving it too long to eat, not eating enough, rushing to eat, or feeling stuck with limited options…
For me, I struggle in this way when I’m out attending meetings during the day and then when at networking events in the evening … It can be really hard to eat well.
So today I’m sharing my top tips and advice on how to eat well when you’re travelling or have limited options…
“Food isn’t just calories, it’s information. It talks to your DNA and tells it
what to do. The most powerful tool to change your health,
environment, and entire world is your fork.”
Dr. Mark Hyman
6. Be prepared
Always carry a snack with you so that you have something to eat if you’re caught short.
I recommend fruit, like apples, pears and bananas. Oatcakes. Nuts and dried fruit. Granola or protein bars. As I say above – it’s really important you keep your blood sugar levels stable so that you can keep your mind calm and focussed and your energy consistent throughout the day.
Remember, food is your main source of fuel – what, how and when you eat plays a huge role in your mood, focus, performance and overall health.
